Beauty & Style | CertClean’s Clean Beauty Awards

This is the 4th annual Clean Beauty Awards hosted by CertClean that celebrates high-quality and high-performance products, created with the healthiest ingredients, from around the world. Yay clean beauty!! Its goal is to celebrate the power of the clean, or “free from” beauty movement and they use an impressive group of judges. Somehow me being looped in as one of them – I am super excited and proud to be a part of such an amazing and meaningful beauty award event. The CertClean’s Clean Beauty awards judged over 300 products from all over the globe in skincare, makeup, lotions, etc from which 68 finalists were announced this past Monday, Jan. 21 with full results being released in Mar/Apr. My grouping: skincare. Mid-September I received a box full of goodies (pictured above) filled with a good haul of natural and clean beauty skincare products! The products I received are below and they’re all hyperlinked:


C2 California Clean    →


Ageless Face Oil Squalane + Vit E

Stark Skincare    → CITY Recalibrating Oil
Olivarrier    → Dual moist toning lotion
Kaelen Harwell    → Essential Day and Night Creme
Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm Sensitive Skin Face Serum
Plantioxidants    → Powerseed Menagerie Cream Light
La Prétentieuse    → Crème matifiante à la sève de bambou (oil control and mattifier stem day cream)

We were given the criteria of how it performed, does the product do what it says it’d do, the ease of uses/directions, the overall user experience (smell, texture, greasiness, residue, absorption, etc.) and would we recommend this to others. I have pretty darn sensitive combination skin so it’s hard to find products that don’t irritate my skin to some extent. All of the products I tried didn’t irritate my skin. My top 3 of the 7 products I tried were (in no order):

Okay and this isn’t meant to be a plug, but honestly, the people I communicated with from CertClean throughout this process were extremely sweet and a pleasure to work with! They were very responsive and excited about this initiative and it was infectious. 🙂 This is an amazing initiative to be a part of and a great way to further share my love for clean beauty with you all! Stay tuned and make sure to follow @certclean on IG to get the latest details on the winners.
